. romney with regard to national security. a new cnn poll showing president obama with a 14-point advantage on being a strong and decisive leader. a 13-point lead on the man voters trust to handle foreign policy. and the man who has earned that trust advantage, the president, has just wrapped up a visit to walter reed military hospital spending time with injured troops there. at around the same time, paul ryan was out visiting first responders in wisconsin. sharing some lasagna, i'm sure making no mention of the fact that he voted against the 9/11 first responders health bill multiple times. indeed, the man who would be veep faces scrutiny on his record as he continues to claim that he has more foreign policy experience than the president had in 2008. >> what is your foreign policy experience? >> i have been in congress for 14 years. he was in the senate for far, far less time than that. i voted -- you know, norah, i voted to send men and women to war. >> that may be a dubious selling point with voters, mr. ryan, but i guess if that's all you've got. down in pennsylvania ryan's ca

the strongest, you know, advantages that president obama has had throughout this campaign has been foreign policy, and the other thing is i think they're trying to deflect from the fact that part of the problem, part of the reason we have the relationship and some of the tensions that exist are because of the war, preemptive war, war of choice by president bush in iraq and then afghanistan and that's part of what president obama has actually been trying to, you know, in addition to getting us out of the wars, undo some of that damage. that's not a conversation they want to have. i find it interesting when they talk about the sabre rattling, noecons going into iran, if we did that, it would be a similar situation, american forces on the ground, american resources not spent at home. it could be morsi we have seen on television now or as we saw with american loss of life coming home. there's a responsible element to this as well. >> you say that. julian, all i hear from people like paul ryan and the other expert on foreign policy, sarah palin, is that this president's affect has been
